Zoom Sibshops for teens ages 13-18 who have a sibling with a disability.

Zoom Sibshops are for children and teens who have a sibling with disabilities. Sibshops are a fun, sib-focused time to connect and relax with other siblings who get what being a sib is all about.

For the adults who run them and for the agencies that sponsor them, Sibshops are evidence of their loving concern for the family member who will have the longest-lasting relationship with a person who has a disability. However, for the children and teens who attend them, Sibshops are fun events where they will meet other sibs (usually for the first time), have fun, laugh, talk about the challenges and joys of having a sib with disabilities, play some great games and learn something about the services their brothers and sisters receive.

Especially during this time when many families are spending more time at home, siblings are experiencing all kinds of feelings. Meeting other sibs, talking and playing games with one another can help your child feel less alone and more prepared to handle different experiences and situations that arise.

An online Sibshops for ages 13 to 18 is scheduled for 3 to 4:40 p.m. June 25.

Emily Holl, director of the Sibling Support Project and a nationally-renowned expert and trainer of the Sibshop model, will facilitate the Zoom Sibshops.

After registration, participants will receive a Zoom link via email.
